IRS Tax Resolution Services


IRS Federal Tax Liens can be a consistent source of frustration. Federal Tax Liens can keep you from buying or selling a house and they can ruin your credit score. Fortunately, there’s a great deal that can be done in order to lessen the burden of, or even completely eliminate, tax liens.

A lien is a form of debt that allows whom you owe money to take your property if you don’t pay back your debt as agreed. As an example, a mortgage agreement creates a lien on a house in favor of the bank that lent the cash. Notice of existence of this lien is generally filed in addition to the deed. If you do not cover your mortgage payment, the bank may take your residence. That is usually called a foreclosure. The other common lien scenario may involve an automobile. If you finance a car, the financier may take the car should you not cover the monthly payments. The occurrence of a vehicle lien is generally notated on the title of the car. It’s within this context that people may understand the IRS Federal Tax Lien. The IRS Federal Tax Lien gives the IRS the right to take your property if you do not repay the IRS tax debt.

 Forté Tax Law is well-versed in addressing tax lien issues and directing  clients through the process to identify and implement the most strategic resolutions. Here are some of the methods Forté Tax Law uses to help:

Forté Tax Law will help you apply for a lien withdrawal with the IRS, requesting the authority to remove the ‘Notice of Federal Tax Lien’, assuring other curious entities that it isn’t competing with them for the defaulter’s property.

Alternatively, Forté Tax Law can assist a taxpayer with a lien subordination request. While this doesn’t remove the lien, a named creditor is allowed to move their standing before the United States’ position with the aim of asserting the property subject to IRS lien. This makes it much easier for the owner of the property to acquire a loan or mortgage with an IRS lien currently in place.

The taxpayer may possibly also have to pay for interest on the unpaid amount, from the due date of the payment until the day the amount is paid in full.

Do not jeopardize losing your assets and property to the IRS!

In case there is an IRS investigation, the IRS may provide as few as 10 days for taxpayers to full pay their tax liability. Failure to take action may lead to receiving a federal tax lien, or worse, seizure on your assets. A tax lien is a claim on your property, which may only be released after you pay the tax, interest, penalties, and county recording fees, entirely. If you don’t appeal or settle on a payment plan within 30 days of receiving the IRS notice, the IRS can begin seizing your assets, such as your home or car, income, bank accounts, retirement accounts, and Social Security.

Employment Tax

Employment taxes are generally paid to the IRS at the close of every quarter. Until all these taxes are paid to the IRS, the company must hold onto the taxes in trust. These taxes are consequently called Trust Fund taxes because the business holds these taxes on behalf of the IRS. When a company required to withhold and pay these taxes fails to do so, the IRS will hold the company accountable for the taxes, with few exceptions, and may seize business assets or even shut the business down for failure to pay these taxes to the IRS. If the IRS is not able to get the taxes against the business, either as the firm has closed or is not able to pay the taxes for whatever reason, the IRS has the right to pursue any part of the company, or company personnel, which the IRS determines was responsible to document and pay the employment taxes. The IRS may also levy the accountable party’s personal resources and salaries. When the IRS does this, this can be identified as the Trust Fund Recovery Penalty.

The Trust Fund Recovery Penalty can be the most intense of all IRS civil obligations. A company could potentially rack up millions of dollars of outstanding trust fund taxes. The good news is that most of the remedies available to you to resolve your income tax issue, i.e., Offer in Compromise, Installment Agreement, Currently not Collectible, etc. will be available to resolve a Trust Fund Recovery Penalty. Therefore, if you cannot afford to pay it, the IRS will likely come to an alternative payment agreement with you.

Forté Tax Law can defend your business from the initial trust fund assessment if it’s not accurate, and if the penalty is assessed, can defend the individual (or individuals) held responsible.

IRS Audit

Annually, taxpayers are required to file a tax return. Your tax return reports to the IRS what your income was for the prior year, and sets forth your calculation of the taxes you owe. This calculation of one’s taxation is known as “self-assessment.”

As inconvenient as it is for us to have to submit a tax return year in and year out, taking precious time from our busy days, the IRS is giving us an opportunity by letting us record our own returns. The reason for it is because we tell the IRS how much we think our tax bill ought to be and it becomes the IRS’s burden to prove otherwise.

The self-assessment tax system of the IRS comes with one significant caveat: the IRS isn’t required to agree with your self-assessment. Whenever the IRS does not agree with your examination, the IRS may decide to conduct what’s termed an audit, or, as the IRS refers to it, an “examination.”

If you are audited, you are entitled to legal representation. Do not take on the IRS by yourself.

Why document unfiled tax returns?

Missing just one return, even by mistake, could quickly snowball to unthinkable IRS problems. Most people are unaware that the IRS may prepare their unfiled returns. Whenever the IRS prepares your unfiled tax return, they may not be aware of any probable deductions, expenses, dependents, or your actual filing status.

The law firm will deal with all IRS communications while working to fix your IRS tax problems. After Forté Tax Law has filed the unfiled returns, they will represent you in resolving any outstanding taxes which remain.
